Hickory, N.C. - The Pfeiffer University baseball team opened their season with a road trip to Lenoir-Rhyne University Baseball. The teams split a double header on Sunday afternoon. Pfeiffer dropped the first game 6-11, but came back to take the second 9-6. Each team now has a 1-1 overall record.
Game One - Lenoir-Rhyne 11, Pfeiffer 6
Lenoir-Rhyne junior Chris Henderson (Lincolnton, NC) (1-0) allowed just two runs (one earned) in 6.1 innings pitched in picking up the win while junior outfielder Evan Taylor (Charlotte, NC) hit a three-run home run to spark a six-run seventh inning that keyed the Bears' victory.
L-R jumped out to a 2-0 lead with a pair of run-scoring ground outs by junior outfielder Max Loveland (Bradenton, FL) and junior catcher Rob Knight (Sterling Heights, MI) in the second inning.
Knight added an RBI single in the fifth inning to make it 3-0 before Pfeiffer finally got on the board with a pair of runs in the top of the seventh inning.
Lenoir-Rhyne's six-run seventh inning pushed its lead to 9-2 but Pfeiffer would make a game of it with four runs in the top of the eighth spearheaded by Mike Green's (Brandon, FL) three-run home run to cut the margin to 9-6.
Game Two - Pfeiffer 9, Lenoir-Rhyne 6
Pfeiffer's Josh Strickland (Liberty, NC) finished with two hits and three runs batted in to help the Falcons earn a win.
L-R opened the scoring with a two-run double by junior shortstop Alex Cooks (Tampa, FL) in the bottom of the first inning but Pfeiffer responded with five runs in the top of the third frame highlighted by Will Davis' (New London, NC) two-run single.
Another two-run double by Cooks in the Bears' half of the third was part of a three-run inning that tied the contest at five. Cooks would finish two-for-two with four runs batted in despite the setback.
Pfeiffer took the lead for good in the sixth inning on Strickland's game-winning, two-run double.
L-R cut the margin to 7-6 on a sacrifice fly by sophomore catcher Brian Dice (Hickory, NC) in the bottom of the sixth but Pfeiffer added single runs in the seventh and eighth innings, respectively.
Pfeiffer's Eric Shoemaker (Huntersville, NC) hit a solo home run in the eighth frame that finished off the scoring.
The Falcons' Ben Beard (Huntersville, NC) (1-0) picked up the win while L-R senior Greg Conrad (Charlotte, N.C.) fell to 0-1 with the loss. Andrew Oliver (Cornelius, NC) registered the save for Pfeiffer.
